“Fantastic view - Gloomy restaurant!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

I have tried this restaurant several times over the years mainly for its situation, but won't be going again.

It has one of the most fantastic views in Plymouth but once inside the gloomy decor makes you feel quite depressed, I don't think it has been updated for years. The entrance could do with sprucing up (a good sweep,a lick of paint, remove dead plants ). The food was very average, gloopy soup, tough meat...
The staff were very efficient but did not exude much bonhomie. It is maybe resting on past laurels but as there are quite a few upmarket restaurants springing up in Plymouth maybe they need to up their game.

“Great for large groups”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Twelve of us went for my husbands birthday on the 2nd March and we had a great meal. We had the banquet option G I think it was and there was so much food!!! The selection was great and there was something for everyone. All of the food was hot and the staff couldn't do anymore for us. We weren't overlooking the sound but as we were all off a ship which was currently moored out there it really didn't bother us!!!!

“1st and last time”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

my first time in Plymouth on business and decided to have a Chinesse along with my colleagues. on appearances looked very authentic but on closer inspection the decor was very tired. We ordered 2 courses each, the soup was cold and congealed. Then the crispy duck came for main course the first one was cold which was sent back closely followed by rubber duck number two which was chewier than a shredded michelin tyre.
Next time i'm in Plymouth will give this a wide berth.

“Uni student mum”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Just eaten lunch here with my uni daughter before heading home.The lunchtime menu is excellent value & the portions generous (enough to take a doggy bag for a cash strapped student to eat later & not too much trouble for the staff to organise), Try to get a table by the window to appreciate the views across the water - stunning location for a restaurant. Felt like we were eating on a boat!!
